Unilever has been certified as the Top Employer in Africa for the third time in a row. For a company such as Unilever to achieve business success, it is important that its leadership create an environment where employees feel valued, where their creative ideas can germinate and contribute towards the company’s overall achievements.
Unilever’s Top Employer status in Africa was solidified when company was certified in Zimbabwe for the first time and achieved No.1 status in Ghana, Nigeria and Kenya. The organisation also added the No. 1 FMCG in South Africa and No. 1 Manufacturing in South Africa certifications to their belt.
“At Unilever we work hard to combine our global experience with our deep Africa roots to develop local talent so we are delighted to see our efforts recognized by the internationally renowned Top Employers as a truly independent and verifiable measure of industry best practice in HR,” says Mechell Chetty, Unilever Vice President: Human Resources.
The annual international research and audit undertaken by the Top Employers Institute recognises leading employers around the world that provide excellent employee conditions, nurture and develop talent throughout all levels of the organisation, and which strive to continuously optimise employment practices.
